The White Gondola

My friend Piero recently sent me this photo. It’s a gondola on the Adriatic Sea, by the island of Iesolo, near Venice. Non-black gondolas are usually the racing gondolas; each racer in the regatte rows a different color boat so viewers can easily tell them apart from afar. I’m guessing this guy was a racer headed out to practice.

    The white boat on the seas looks very serene…And because it’s not the traditional black, it lends a dream quality to the image… Too bad it’s not a little closer. Still, very nice 🙂
